I have a lot to thank Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian West for, but the, ahem, biggest thing of all? How I’m able to embrace my big bum. Before the song, Bootylicious, came out, I felt self-conscious about having a curvy bottom. Now, I’m not saying that Bey had the power to change my feelings overnight, but that combined with J.Lo and Kardashian West’s influence over how we view butts, I started to feel like it was something to be embraced and not something to be embarrassed about.

However, even if you are blessed with a fuller butt, much like if you’ve got a bigger bust, there are some fashion hurdles to jump. Pick the wrong piece, and you can somehow end up looking a few dress sizes bigger than you are. And while your physical appearance isn’t everything, it’s always useful to know the tricks to dressing for your shape to help you feel and look more confident.

From the right underwear to the most flattering coat, I’ve got the hacks that will give you more confidence about showing it off.
